Bard-Rockefeller Program

The Bard-Rockefeller Semester in Science in New York City (BRSS) is an intensive one-semester program designed for advanced science students, particularly those in the fields of neuroscience, biochemistry, molecular biology, developmental biology, biophysics, and genetics. Students spend a semester living and working in New York City working in the laboratory with faculty from The Rockefeller University and taking specially-designed science classes at Rockefeller and at Bard Hall, in conjunction with Bard's program in Globalization and International Affairs.

Among many joint ventures, the university offers specialized science courses to Bard undergraduates, allowing more advanced graduate students and postdoctoral fellows to gain teaching experience at Bard and creating the opportunity for undergraduates to study the sciences through one of the world's premier research universities.
